iPhone: Prioritise download of certain apps

As anyone who has been using iPhones for a while can tell you, one of the most time consuming parts about getting a new iPhone is downloading all the apps. Some apps are more important than others, and it would be nice if there was a way to tell the iPhone which apps to prioritise. As it turns out, you can. Here’s how:

  1. Long press on the app you want to prioritise
  2. In the menu that pops up, tap “Prioritise download”:

While it would have been nice if there was a way to see a list of apps yet to download, preferably sorted in order of download priority, at least you can say that some apps are more important than others.
